It is a small but very nice lake. We were there in the late afternoon and after the rain, so there were almost no people around which made the experience even better.

This is just a good 35 mins drive from Gmunden and the lake is breathtaking. Fresh air, nice walks, what more can you ask for? There is also a big restaurant which we did not try, but the menu looked promising.
